Outstanding Manchester office block completes
Requiring 2,400t of structural steelwork, 4 Angel Square, the latest addition to the NOMA estate in Manchester has been completed.
The 11-storey office building, which is net zero carbon in operation and has achieved a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, was recently handed over by main contractor Bowmer + Kirkland’s (B+K) North-West team.
The structure boasts an array of sustainability features and is operated completely on renewable energy with air source heat pumps and rooftop photovoltaic panels. 4 Angel Square also has a comprehensive building management system that allows for the monitoring and adjustments of energy performance, climate control, and air quality.
In addition to offices, the building includes a business lounge, event facility, and wellness suite. The ground floor is also reserved for leisure and retail opportunities.
Dan Hyde continued: “It stands as a pioneer among the next generation of sustainable office buildings at NOMA, and we look forward to welcoming the new occupiers to our growing neighbourhood very soon.”
B+K Regional Director, Paul Sykes, said: “This building is an exemplar in sustainable office spaces, and we take immense pride in being the principal contractor for its construction.
“Manchester is renowned for its forward-thinking approach, and 4 Angel Square aligns seamlessly with the city’s future-forward ethos, enhancing the wellbeing and productivity of its occupants.”
